Twilight Struggle - The Deluxe Edition contains upgraded components at no extra cost to you!
In 1945, unlikely allies toppled Hitler's war machine, while humanity's most devastating weapons forced the Japanese Empire to its knees in a storm of fire. Where once there stood many great powers, there then stood only two. The world had scant months to sigh its collective relief before a new conflict threatened. Unlike the titanic struggles of the preceding decades, this conflict would be waged not primarily by soldiers and tanks, but by spies and politicians, scientists and intellectuals, artists and traitors.
Twilight Struggle is a two-player game simulating the forty-five year dance of intrigue, prestige, and occasional flares of warfare between the Soviet Union and the United States. The entire world is the stage on which these two titans fight to make the world safe for their own ideologies and ways of life. The game begins amidst the ruins of Europe as the two new "superpowers" scramble over the wreckage of the Second World War, and ends in 1989, when only the United States remained standing.
The event cards give detail and flavour. Decision-making is a constant challenge as to how to use ones cards and units with consistently limited resources.
The new Deluxe Edition features:
Mounted map with revised graphics
Two double-thick counter sheets with 228 counters
Deck of 110 event cards (increased from 104)
Revised rules and player aid cards
